I’ve had the pictures for this Pink Owl Baby Shower Cake uploaded for almost two weeks and just haven’t had time to slow down and write about it. Between sick kids, my husband working long days, Cake Fest, the cake contest and other random busyness… it’s just been on the back-burner.
But tonight I’m posting it. I’m going to share as much as I can, as fast as I can and then move on because I’m tired of looking at it in my queue. Ha!
Except for the brown (which was Satin Ice), all of the decorations were made with homemade marshmallow fondant. I used Americolor gel colors: Soft Pink, Leaf Green and Regal Purple to do the other colors (tiny amounts of each to get the pale shades).
Oh and I should say that this cake was completely copied from an Arte Da Ka Owl Cake. I cannot find it on the website now, but here it is on Pinterest. I changed the colors and sizes of the tiers (at the clients request) and mine is not nearly as flawless, but I was in love with the cake from first sight and it was so much fun making it!
Here are a few details and tools that I used:
- First Impressions Pearl Mold for the borders
- Extruder for the brown branches
- Flower Cutter/Plunger from this Wilton Gum Paste Flowers Set
- White Sugar Pearls for the flower centers
- Marvelous Molds Double Wedding Ring Silicone Onlay
- Sugar Glue to attach all the things
My favorite part had to be this sweet little owl. I mixed tylose into homemade marshmallow fondant (so it would dry and harden) and I made her a few days ahead so she would stand up. I used a dowel through the center (she was really thick) to support her. OH and the branch was also Satin Ice brown mixed with tylose.
